Today in Allmans history

Image hosted by

May 30, 1980: Carl Radle, bassist with Eric Clapton's and Duane Allman's Derek & The Dominos dies of a chronic kidney ailment at the age of 37. This is the second Dominos' member that died before their time; guitarist Duane Allman was 24 when he was killed in a motorcycle crash in 1971. What's more, the Dominos' drummer Jim Gordon eventually had to be institutionalized.
